Free for All - Printers Tray

I love Tandos printers trays - they make a lovely gift and also you can layer up loads of paints and inks on the chipboard.  This tray has a little cover that you lift up to reveal all the filled boxes.  

I started by covering all the chipboard in a layer of white gesso to help show off the mists and stop them sinking in to the chipboard. The painting and layering is made really easy as these frames come in layers that you can build up.  After the painting, I then went on to inking and used brown and blue cosmic shimmer mists, drying in-between layers and it gives you a beautiful covering of colour with that lovely mica shimmer.  Whilst that was drying I then covered the back board with some paper, then once everything was dry assembled the tray and went to work filling the little windows with lace, embellishments, papers - all sorts of little treasures.
